Parental Saturdays in June
The special days set aside by the church to commemorate the departed relatives are called parent Saturdays. At this time memorial services are held in churches and temples, offering prayers to the Supreme Powers for the repose of souls who have departed to another world.
Parental Saturdays received such a name due to the fact that most of the dates of commemoration fall precisely on Saturdays. They are called parental because parents most often leave the world before their offspring. However, the church commemorates all who have completed the earthly path.
Do not pray only for the dead is not his death. Holy Trinity Sabbath is reserved for their commemoration.

Dmitrov’s parental Saturday is marked in the church calendar on November 3. Until that time, Orthodox believers continue to offer prayers to the Supreme Forces, asking them for peace for all who left the world of the living. You can also ask the Lord for forgiveness for your transgressions and ask your beloved relatives to take their souls to Heaven. We wish you happiness, and do not forget to press the buttons and
